John Lennon - How? Lyrics




How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing?
How can I go forward when I don't know which way to turn?
How can I go forward into something I'm not sure of?
Oh no, oh no

How can I have feeling when I don't know if it's a feeling?
How can I feel something if I just don't know how to feel?
How can I have feelings when my feelings have always been denied?
Oh no, oh no

You know life can be long
And you got to be so strong
And the world is so tough
Sometimes I feel I've had enough

How can I give love when I don't know what it is I'm giving?
How can I give love when I just don't know how to give?
How can I give love when love is something I ain't never had?
Oh no, oh no

You know life can be long
You've got to be so strong
And the world she is tough
Sometimes I feel I've had enough

How can we go forward when we don't know which way we're facing?
How can we go forward when we don't know which way to turn?
How can we go forward into something we're not sure of?
Oh no, oh no

  10. Bianca Santos

    39 anos... :'(

  11. Culprit LA

    interesting, there is a bit, the piano chords at 0:55 and throughout, that sound exactly like a part of "Long and Winding Road" - presumably a song of Paul's John didn't care for AND this coming on the same album as the spectacularly mean-spirited "How Do You Sleep."

  12. Videogamesconsole.it

    Una lacrima scende, mentre la canzone mitiga la mia tristezza...

  13. Blanca Escudero-Abarca

    Excelente canción!!!!
    Me encanta el arreglo, y los metales de la canción

  23. mas pok

    This is great song with lame orchestration.

  24. Carceda

    the 1:37 part is very similar to this part 1:12 of the song of ELO - telephone line.

    Laura Love

    holy crap it is

    Carceda

    @Laura Love Jeff Lynne, Lennon and The Beatles, had a close relationship.

  25. is ceraticlark 52

    el jonh se caso con yoko y tuvo un hijo con yoko habiendo tantas inglesas re lindas se casa con una mujer fea pero bueno el amor es raro

  26. Grahame Green

    Lennon bares his soul so wonderfully again... Unrequited love, nowadays referred to as 'hysterical dependency.'

  27. Stephen Coomer

    How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing?
    How can I go forward when I don't know which way to turn?
    How can I go forward into something I'm not sure of?
    Oh no, oh no

    How can I have feeling when I don't know if it's a feeling?
    How can I feel something if I just don't know how to feel?
    How can I have feelings when my feelings have always been denied?
    Oh no, oh no

    You know life can be long
    And you got to be so strong
    And the world is so tough
    Sometimes I feel I've had enough

    How can I give love when I don't know what it is I'm giving?
    How can I give love when I just don't know how to give?
    How can I give love when love is something I ain't never had?
    Oh no, oh no

    You know life can be long
    You've got to be so strong
    And the world she is tough
    Sometimes I feel I've had enough

    How can we go forward when we don't know which way we're facing?
    How can we go forward when we don't know which way to turn?
    How can we go forward into something we're not sure of?
    Oh no, oh no

  42. Aleenkaaa Unimpressed

  43. Эльдар Ильясов

    Perfect song

  44. c44LuWanda

    "How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing?" Excellent question, John.  I am sure 99.9% of the world's population have never put "going forward" into this particular perspective.  Thank you, John for writing about it in a song.  I love this song.

  45. meeeee1968

    Absolute genius ,
    sad loss

  46. Emilia Cannavale

    How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing?
    How can I go forward when I don't know which way to turn?
    How can I go forward into something I'm not sure of?
    Oh no, oh no
    How can I have feeling when I don't know if it's a feeling?
    How can I feel something if I just don't know how to feel?
    How can I have feelings when my feelings have always been denied?
    Oh no, oh no

    You know life can be long
    And you got to be so strong
    And the world is so tough
    Sometimes I feel I've had enough

    How can I give love when I don't know what it is I'm giving?
    How can I give love when I just don't know how to give?
    How can I give love when love is something I ain't never had?
    Oh no, oh no

    You know life can be long
    You've got to be so strong
    And the world she is tough
    Sometimes I feel I've had enough

    How can we go forward when we don't know which way we're facing?
    How can we go forward when we don't know which way to turn?
    How can we go forward into something we're not sure of?
    Oh no, oh no

  47. Margarita Danova

    I am really grateful to John for writing this song. When I was about 14 or 15, had just lost my father and felt incredibly confused about life and the way things go, hearing this made me realize there have been other people feeling like that. I suddenly saw that I was definitely not the only one having to face it. Not the only one trying to figure out what to do and think. Definitely not alone. Thank you!

  48. Lily Bull

    There will never be another John Lennon... rip

  49. Jamie Martin

    How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing..... Never be another John Lennon. RIP sir.

  50. kim pisarski

  51. JAMES PARA

  53. Prisioneiro de Azkaban

    Ozzy Osbourne brought me here

  54. M M

    Breaks my heart . Amazing deep and philosophical , but honest always honest.

  55. L. T.

    Amazing lyrics that sums up what depression is like...

  56. your mamma

    It's a true masterpiece

  57. The Dark Cowboy

    ,John you are the best!!!

  58. Jussi Tarponen

    I think Imagine and Plastic Ono Band were equal as artBut I like more Imagine. Who wants to hear all the time the truth ?

  59. Isabel Cardenas Martinez

    1960 -1980

  60. Isabel Cardenas Martinez

    RIP JOHN LENNON DESCANCE EN PAZ

  61. Wagner Freire da Costa

    For me it's the most beautifull John Lennon's song. Simply wonderfull. The world lost the greatest talent of all the times.

    devev fefwefow

    I prefer imagine, but this song is very good too

  62. LUIS SERGIO CASTRO SANZANA

    JOHN, COMO SE TE EXTRAÑA.

  63. Amar chemissa

    Lomepal

  64. Diana pi

    I love this song!!! Especially the "Oh no" parts

  65. Isabel Cardenas Martinez

    te amo john lennon que fuiste death te quiero mucho que fuiste un beatle te disparo un fan en la espalda te queremos john lennon

  66. lastlocalhero

    For some publications it should be possible to deactivate the thumbs down button. Absolutely indiscreet. What a wonderful piece of music.

  67. Billis Lopez

    Maybe the most underrated song of John's. I don't think anyone ever mentions it as among his best, when it surely is. I relate to these lyrics so much, as I'm sure many others do. John captured emotions so well.

    Bianca Santos

    Exactly!

    Catherine Hughes

    Agree and that's why I love John's lyrics...very vulnerable and honest...this is a good example...and yes, I can relate to his words too. He has a clever way with words...and summarises feelings and emotions so well.

    Baden Johnson

    Billis Lopez it’s the best song he ever wrote

    Lauren R

    @pablo 97 True.

  68. Majomi Scruce

    El Mejor John Lennon ♡♡

  69. Marshall Lemon

    Amo esta canción, no se que hacer con mi vida....y esto me ayuda porque me siento como el :")
    John era grande <3

  70. Gary McBride

    I love John for his honesty, miss him so much thanks for inspiring so many of us

  71. Killer Osore

    And I love john

  72. Killer Osore

    I feel like john is like a part of me in music and when I listen to his songs I can feel him like he's not alive though so yah.

    MynxLynx

    I know what you feel, me too.

  73. biasヴァイ

    how can l go to heaven?

  74. Alberto Tejeda

    Give peace a chance!

    John Lennon

    Alberto Tejeda wrong song

  75. Rebecca Bromell

    still listening 2019!

  76. Omero Gallardo

    What can I say

  77. Jonathan Cilley

    He put his heart on his sleeve. Always has and always did until the end of time.

  78. Joseph Gossey

    I have the vinyl LP. He was so great. Miss him still.

    John Lennon

    Joseph Gossey same

  79. Sergio Serrano

    This song is pure emotion. For the broken people.

  80. green river

    I hope nobody say it is an underrated song, as usual,

    Ringo SadStarr

    This song is so underrated

    Billis Lopez

    It's the very definition of an underrated song. Everyone talks about Imagine (also a masterpiece) but this one always gets overlooked.

  81. Axel Axelsson

    1:38 Compare that to ELO's "Telephone Line" at 0:40.

    HowToMasterBabyJesus

    BRO IVE BEEN SAYIN THIS HELL YEA

    Smash Runner

    Yes , i knew i wasn't crazy , ELO relly were the sons of The Beatles like Lennon said once.

  82. kakinho ta certo

    Divo lindo

  83. yHuter23

    Música boa que não volta mais. Saudades do que eu não vivi :()

  84. Robis Espos

    Thank you John... Thank you...

  85. Dillon Ladd

    how is this not liked in my generation

  86. straw berry

    nice drumming Alan White !

  87. Mad Dog

    Put toghether Klaus Voorman (bass) , Nicky Hopkins - Organ (He did Stones She is a rainbow piano part), George Harrison (Guitar), John Lennon (music & Lyrics, Piano, Voice) and Phil Spector (Producer, He created "the wall of sound") and You will get this,... I really miss these quality songs in today`s music...

  88. theforestwitch

    Shaun Patrick Williams <3

  89. Iamhereblossom

    I think the vocal similarities with Kevin Parker are very strong in this track.

  90. Agustin Nahuel Matera

    Belleza

  91. David Paez

    Genius.

  92. Daniel Ll Rz

    The only reason to dislike this video is because that wall of sound

    Corinthians Até a Morte

    Don't say shit

    Javier Sanchez

    @Corinthians Até a Morte wall sound wtf that was a complain only by McCartney. John and George liked it

    Billis Lopez

    It's a good sound. Phil Spector was a terrible human being but a good producer.

  93. Hejira

    Soon forty years, and i still cry ! thanks for all dear John !

  94. Garry Harriman

    John Lennon was a complex and polorized figure who was damaged as my h as he was a musical genious. He was also, in my view, assassinated as the result of a hidden conspiracy carried out by dark forces that probably got rid of other undesirable figures at the time like both Kennedy brothers and Dr King. ' The official story the public did buy, but there is more than we know about the man who read the Catcher in the Rye'!

  95. Rene Amozurrutia

    This song Walked with Me Through my depression in 2016.

  96. Sam Best

    I heard day's that John and Yoko were hurt by people abusing them. I wonder if John knew how loved he was? I don't think John was shy but I am and I love him.

  97. Lívia Guimarães Gussen

    This is album is special

  98. Eric Beaulieu

    Thank you JoHn & YoKo.All tHe BesT
